Parents should always be committed to offer positive parenting to their kids. Because at the
end of the day, the most overwhelming key to a child’s success is the positive involvement
of parents.
5 positive parenting tips for new age parents:
 Understand the meaning behind the behaviour- Instead of labelling the behaviour of the
child as bad behaviour it’s very important for us to understand the reason behind the
behaviour. And if you pay attention on this aspect it would be easier for you to support your
child and change the bad behaviour with positivity.
 Focus on controlling yourself first —not your child- For parents it's hard to keep cool in the
heat of the moment, but parents need to model the types of behaviour they want their
children to imitate. We should not do anything in front of our children that we don't want
them to do.
 Be consistent with your expectations- We as parents often overlook a certain behaviour
in the hope that it will pass. But a many times it doesn’t pass and then behaviour
becomes a part of the character or becomes a habit. If you see your child showing bad
behaviour then acknowledge it, and explain to the child that why this sort of behaviour
is not acceptable. If the child continues, then it is time to remove the child from that
particular situation.
 Give attention to the behaviour you like—not the behaviour you don't – Children often
act up because they want your attention, so sometimes it pays to ignore those actions
you don't want to see more of. But with caution, if you keep ignoring then the child
might not understand that he/she cannot behave like that. So maintain a balance in
stating the consequences of the behaviour and avoid giving too much attention to it.
 Don't bribe- Parents may often feel tempted to offer a cookie for behaving well during an
outing, but it needs to be understood that offering child a reward sends the wrong message;
for children the message is “you need to be given something to behave well”. Avoid bribing
because you don’t want your kids to expect a reward every time for their behaviour.
Research says the best reward for children is time with parents. It’s advisable for each
parent to spend minimum 15 minutes individually with each child that is truly the best
investment you can make in your child.
